Post Trauma

The Six Sentence Story word prompt – Remnant

The farmers survived the calamity of the bushfire. They ran out of adrenaline. What they have to face now is the remnant of destruction.

The ground is covered with green again but they still smell char. It’s both painful to hear people talking about the fire and stop talking about the fire. The farmers are desperately trying to get on with their life to smile at each other with desolate eyes.

  1. I can’t even imagine what it would be like for farmers or home owner’s who’ve lost their homes, their livelihoods to fire. The smell lasts a very long time as does the blackened landscape, until new growth pushes through.
